Table 2. Effects of Halothane (0.6%) and Isoflurane (0.8%) on Postrest Potentiation
Values are mean ± SD.
*=P < 0.05 vs. baseline values. No significant differences between groups.
B1 = first isometric contraction after rest; B0 = last isometric contraction before rest:τ= rate constant of the exponential decay in active isometric force (AF) after postrest potentiation:τ= number of beats required for postrest contraction to decay to one-tenth of its maximum (B1).
